I obviously did not read this as-yet unpublished book. However, the claims made by the authors as to Kammler's alleged survival and postwar utilization by the Allies strike me as fantastical and contrary to eyewitness testimony as recounted in Andreas Schulz & Dr. Dieter Zinke, Die Generale der Waffen-SS und der Polizei, Band 2.

Forum member steve248, a skilled and accomplished researcher, writes:

"No doubt another speculative 2+2 = 35.
I wonder whether the authors have answered the question 'what did he have to offer?'
Because the answer is not very much
Kammler was a management specialist. He dealt in architectural questions at WVHA including the building specifications for the Auschwitz crematorium building that included the gas chambers in 1942. In 1944 made responsible for the V-2 missile firings and in 1945, added jet fighter production to his list of jobs trying to mesh men and materiel. A forlorn task in 1945 because Germany did not have the fuel to allow flight operations.
And why would Kammler be treated any different to Speer who was also doing as similar job in Germany industry. Speer was widely interrogated before being released for trial."

Hi everyone, here are a few more advanced praises we received for our book The Hidden Nazi: The Untold Story of America's Deal with the Devil

“The Hidden Nazi by Dean Reuter is a stunning achievement. This tightly drawn portrait of SS General Hans Kammler takes the reader from his personal life as recalled in interviews with his son through his notorious work supervising construction of underground factories like Mittelwerk-Dora, where Wernher von Braun’s V-2 rockets were built, and at Auschwitz where this ruthless Nazi perfected the gas chambers. Throughout the book Reuter tells a riveting tale of horror, ending with Kammler’s escape from justice. But where to? Finally, I must complement the researchers Colm Lowery and Keith Chester for collecting a massive treasure trove of documents that made this excellent book possible.”
Author: Linda Hunt, Investigative Reporters & Editors Award–winning author of Secret Agenda: The U.S. Government, Nazi Scientists and Project Paperclip, 1945 to 1991.

“Justice delayed is justice denied? Not in this case. At long last, and at the skillful hands of Dean Reuter, aparticularly nasty Nazi has been brought before the bar of history for a lasting sort of justice—the measured but stern judgment of a meticulous historian.”
Author: George F. Will, Pulitzer Prize–winning columnist.

Thank you very much for your interest and support!

Best wishes
Colm

Hi All, The Hidden Nazi: The Untold Story of America's Deal with the Devil - the new book on SS General Hans Kammler - is now available for sale. Here are some of the five star reviews received so far on Amazon.com;

5 stars A Must Read
Dean Reuter and team have authored a thrilling and original contribution to the history of World War II. While you might think there isn't much new ground to cover in a subject area that has been written about so extensively, they do so in this deeply researched, yet briskly moving book. This is a must read for all who enjoy World War II and American history, as well as those who simply want to add a good read to their bookshelf. Five stars!

5 stars - WOW
"Riveting is an understatement. The fact that we have known zero about Kammler until now makes it all the more compelling. Reuter’s writing style keeps this rolling throughout like a hijacked train."

5 stars - Incredible read
Great read. Such an incredible story that is told in a way that keeps you turning pages.

5 stars - Amazing writing and a gripping journey on the hunt for the truth
"I was given an advance copy of this book in return for an honest review of the book . The Hidden Nazi sits in a genre of WW2 books which I don’t often read. At times I find that books of this nature can be hard to follow or are devoid of energy and pace but this book is different. Dean Reuter, Colm Lowery and Keith Chester have done a great job researching and writing this book. Hans Kammler was instrumental in many of Germany’s WW2 building projects for the Third Reich. He helped engineer the most diabolical and efficient killing machines, the Nazi regime’s concentration camps. With ruthless efficiency this ‘old hand Nazi’ was instrumental in Germany’s ability to carry out the holocaust and other war crimes and this places him amongst some of the top henchmen of Hitler and Himmler. He oversaw the construction and manufacture of the Vergeltungswaffen (Vengence weapons V1 & V2) as well as other prototypes for advanced rockets. Documents uncovered in the trios research also show that we was involved in the research of nuclear weapons and long range ballistics that could deliver them to other continents. The teams volume of research is immense and at times groundbreaking. The story reads beautifully and each new piece of evidence pulls you along through the pages as you join the search for the next piece of the puzzle in the ultimate search for Kammler. I have thoroughly enjoyed the book and learned much of the role of Kammler and the SS in the research and development of weapons that played their part in the war and the space race in years to come. Dean Reuter’s writing is superb, he draws you in and takes you on an adventure as the team work towards finding the truth behind what happened to Dr Hans Kammler. A great book and one you will want to add to your library"

Many thanks
CJ

Hope I'm complying with what is wanted about books published by members- my book (coauthor Dr Tom Nutter) "German Ground Forces Orders of Battle, World War Two" just came out. Here's the link to the description at the SavasBeatie website:

https://www.savasbeatie.com/german-grou ... ay-8-1945/

As I've been working on the research since 1985 and had a contract since 2013 I'm really excited to see it finally come out. We plan a second book doing all the divisions.

One thing I should add about the lists of unit commanders: the book had to be frozen in time several years back so the publisher's contract copy guy could work it into the space saving format in which it was published, so no more amendments could be made. Now I have found much info to update the commanders of all units from divisions to theater commands in the meantime, and if you as a buyer of my book see some-thing in a unit's command that isn't complete you can contact me at genstab@aol.com because I have the current updates that our superstars such as Askropp, Dieter, Histan, Iggy88, etc. have posted in the Axis Biographical Research subforum.

Great- as long as you're only interested in their superior commands and movements during the battles/war. I don't have division TOEs (as a former sailor I'm pretty ignorant of those) and the commanders will be listed in our second book on the divisions, where my coauthor Dr. Tom Nutter will probably do division TOEs.

Season's best to you and a happy 2020.
